MENUMENU

Books Sandwiched In

One of FFRPL’s most popular programs, Books Sandwiched In (BSI) has been running continuously since 1956.

Each year, the Fall series of book reviews runs September through November and the Spring series runs March through May. Reviews are presented by experts in the field.

Registrations will be required for each of the reviews in the Fall 2021 series.

**Register here for Dean Yeltekin’s review on October 26**

We’ll post a link each week for the following week’s review.

Our book review with Simeon Banister, originally scheduled for 9/21/21, was canceled.

He asked that we extend his apologies for disappointing patrons who were expecting to attend.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation as we pivoted to this new registration process, to better monitor capacity for the Auditorium. This enables us to most safely offer our in-person programs for Fall, with reduced attendance and socially distanced seating.
Please note:
Thank you for helping to make it possible for us to present in person events, while keeping everyone safe during the ongoing pandemic.
